  1. A good player knows how to read their competition and when to make their play. Never let ’em see your hand… Previous Player or “The Former Golden Shower Prez ”, ” didn’t telegraph his moves, he broadcast them..

    1. @Harvey Manfredsenjenson
      Gramps trailer park you!
      While you are enjoying democratically fought for entitlements.
      You old hypocrite.

  2. My son’s and friends and their friends and so on and on and on are sick and tired of the military industrial complex playing make believe the sky is falling and so are the youth of the world, so peace is at hand. Let’s take half a trillion from the military budget and from tech so as to fund UBI so the youth can hopefully start to see the American dream again.

    1. @B. T. Other way around, they played him.

      He did so well he moved Washington DC to Mar-a-Lago to fulfill his second term.

    2. @B. T. They still need someone to donate money to.

      Makes them feel like they’re making a difference and it gives them the Democrats to blame when they’re broke.

      Just like the insurectionists losing their guns because of their own stupidity. “The Democrats are trying to take our guns”. When they lost them all by themselves.

    1. Trump negotiated peace treaties with the Taliban and with Afghanistan to make sure we were able to leave by May 1st. The Biden Administration is absolutely botching this. And increased tensions with Iran seem planned. So that we never leave the area

  3. I play a game called “Civilization VI” and in the game if I start wars and do not let up until I’m victorious, the other players call me a “Warmonger”. Leon Panetta is a warmonger in the truest sense. We would always be at war if he had his way.

    1. Because of we dont eradicate the threat of terrorism in Afghanistan now, then we will be right there within a decade starting all over again.

    2. Trump negotiated peace treaties with the Taliban and with Afghanistan to make sure we were able to leave by May 1st. The Biden Administration is absolutely botching this. And increased tensions with Iran seem planned. So that we never leave the area

  4. Of course we all have concerns.
    But the people fighting had not even been born when it started!

    1. So what? There are american troops on the korean dmz line right now whose fathers werent even born when that was established.

    2. hang on! 3 wars looming with us interests NOW! we were the big boy on the block that separated fighting factions. we havent done that in the last 4 years. what do you think will happen? the us respect around the world is now a joke!

  5. Democrats always have to clean up after incompetent and immoral Republican leadership. Imagine how prosperous our nation would be without the GOP.

  6. Unless the criminal organization known as the republican party is destroyed, then nothing Biden does will count for much.

  7. So, now is not the time to withdraw Amercan troops from Afghanistan. Got it. So, when is a good time to return American troops home? It would seem the answer is NEVER. Now we are talking about an army of occupation, yes? Like when the army of the USSR controlled the country?

  8. Of course we do not trust the USA, like we did in the past. If 70 million people voted for a fascist, you will keep on full alert for a number of decennials.

  9. Does Afghanistan want us there? That’s the only question you need to answer. Last I checked they didn’t.

  10. Panetta? I guess he’s the only one they could find to oppose withdrawal besides an obstructionist Republican… He didn’t even serve Obama well. He kind of makes me think of a Democratic Pompeo, lite…
